Santa Monica Mts. Wildflowers 8/2/2017

Santa Monica Mts. National Recreation Area has  a new wildflower report

Malibu Lagoon State Beach   Misc. Paths & The Beach   8/2/2017

When it is just too hot to hike in the canyons it is good to remember that there are lots of interesting plants growing by the beach, at least some beaches. Malibu Lagoon was recently restored and has a lot of California native plants that you don’t see in the hills and canyons. The California fuchsia is coming into bloom and was well attended by hummingbirds. There is alkali heath, bladder pod, wand buckwheat and wild heliotrope as well as other more familiar flowers. There are also a lot of interesting water birds to watch.
